X Factor 2016: Saara Aalto mobbed by fans at London meet and greet


X Factor's Saara Aalto has made a second homecoming stop in London this week.

Just a couple of days ago, less than 24 hours after finding out she was in the final, Saara was in her home country of Finland for a VERY special performance.

On Sunday night, viewers backed Saara to become one of this year's final three and she couldn't have been happier.

Come Monday evening, Saara was performing on the Helsinki Cathedral steps at the St Thomas Christmas Market in Senate Square.


At the event, Saara performed a number of songs from the X Factor live shows including Winner Takes It All, Chandelier and Let It Go.

However it was very much a flying visit with Saara back in the UK on Tuesday and today (Wednesday) she was in London continuing to rally up support ahead of Sunday's final.

Saara was in the capital where she held a meet and greet with fans in Leicester Square.


As well as British supporters, the singer was also met by those who had been backing her from across the world as she took pictures and signed all sorts.

"When you're in The X Factor bubble, you don't really know what people are thinking about you, it's so nice to see you and hear you supporting me," Saara told the crowd.


Speaking about the final, Saara added: "I'm excited but I'm not nervous. I want people to vote for me because I really want to win!"

In the final this weekend Saara's set to perform alongside Adam Lambert in a bid to win the show.


Saara is one of three acts left on The X Factor 2016 going through to the final at Wembley Arena at the weekend.

Tuesday saw boy band 5 After Midnight make their homecoming in Leicester while Matt Terry was performing at his gig in Bromley on Wednesday.

The X Factor 2016 final airs this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV at 8PM with guests including Kylie Minogue, Little Mix and The Weeknd all confirmed.
